Are we alone? Looking for planets and alien life

Lecture in P/L002, Department of Physics, University of York, YO10 5DD

Speakers: Dr. Simon Goodwin

Over the past decade we have discovered hundreds of planets, and in late 2011 astronomers found the first planets smaller than the Earth.
An obvious question to ask is: do any of these planets have alien life on them?
I will talk about how we find planets, how we will be able to look for life on them, what that life might be like, and the possibility of intelligent alien civilisations out there.
Coffee and biscuits in Physics concourse from 18:00
